I visited Cuba with Coast to Costa in October 2017 as a solo female traveler. Coast to Costa provided an awesome experience pre trip, while on the road, and upon returning.
I had been following CTC's beautiful Instagram page for about a year before deciding to go on the trip. When I reached out via email to ask questions (mostly about traveling alone to Cuba), their response time was super quick and they were happy to answer all of my questions (AKA good vibes right from the start).
This great communication continued through the booking process with a personal phone call from one of the company's founders as well as open lines of communication via email. They also introduced me to one of the travelers who would be on my flight, the woman I would be rooming with (I chose a roommate option, so fun!), and provided brief introductions to the rest of the group. All of this prep, and the thoughtfulness of the CTC crew had me ready to go to Cuba feeling excited and worry free.
One of the best part about traveling in Cuba with Coast to Costa is their connection with locals in the country. This allows one to experience so much more than a typical tourist (think pig roast/regaeton dance party in the backyard of your new favorite Cuban family, or walking through someone's house to be suddenly on the gorgeous Bay of Pigs and be handed the best mojito of your life). My 8 days felt more like two weeks of experiences, in the very best way.
I made so many awesome friends, felt completely safe throughout my travels, rode a horse into a tobacco field and learned about cigars, saw so much beauty, and experienced a resilient culture of people. I'm still in touch with my fellow travelers and the Coast to Costa team and definitely plan to travel with them in the future. Do this trip. You wont regret it!
